savanna – rx-7 – sa22c

The 1st generation of the Mazda RX-7 is produced from 1979 to 1985, featuring a 1146 cc twin-rotor Wankel. The RX-7 was a direct replacement for the RX-3 (both were sold in Japan as the Savanna) and subsequently replaced all other Mazda rotary cars with the exception of the Cosmo. Early models of the SA/FB RX-7 came with the 12A engine wich has roughly 100hp, the 13B was introduced in 1984 an had a whopping 135hp. The RX-7 featured some really nice technical details: 4-link rear suspension, Watt’s linkage, 50/50 weight ratio, total under 1100 kg.
